Impressions Gallery


Bradford Video Portraits

Thu, 4th Jun, 2015

As part of The Caravan Gallery’s Bradford Pride of Place Project sweeping across the city this summer, New Focus, our young people’s project group, have created a short film capturing honest accounts of what it means to live in Bradford today.

Thanks to the 46 generous supporters of their Kickstarter campaign, New Focus have travelled around the city, meeting many people who make Bradford unique. Participants include our Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress, councillors and cultural leaders, market stall holders, bus drivers, comedians, curry connoisseurs and football fanatics. Those taking part range from age 8 to 80 and each has a personal story to tell. To find out more about each film shoot visit the New Focus blog at

To share your views of Bradford, drop in to The Caravan Gallery’s Bradford Pride of Place Project hub at Fuse Art Space from 11 June to 11 July. The hub is a reverse visitor information centre where you can share stories, images, words and opinions about Bradford, adding to an ever-growing exhibition.

Bradford Video Portraits is a film by New Focus, a group of young people from Bradford who work with Impressions to develop projects that inspire and engage people across the city. Since New Focus began in 2012 they have produced four films, run a variety of events, and taken part in Changing Bradford a major exhibition and book.
